    None of those solutions are what I'm needing.  I need some code and freeware that will convert a directory of PRNs to PDFs.

    OK how about this?

    Convert this file to PDF with GhostScript.

    or this?

    convert any printable file into a PDF file.

    or this?

    Creating PDF files from Sibelius using Ghostscript and GSview

    Accepted Solution

    I've used all those before, and they do not convert the PRN files I'm using 100%.  They struggle with boxes and shading and end up putting garbage in its place.

    I found a product called EscapeE from RedTitan that works, although there's no API and everything has to be called from command line.  

    Thanks for your help.
